Feline “Manicure” Serves an Alternative to Declawing

Have you tried training your cat to not use your furniture as a scratching post to no avail?  Does your cat ignore the scratching posts you already have around the house?

Consider a lovely shade of pink, fake nails for your female cat?  How about matching colors for your and your favorite feline?

Before you subject your cat to the painful declawing procedure, consider this alternative: nail caps.  There are plenty of nail caps on the market today.  You can choose to put them on yourself or take your cat to the vet so your vet can put them on for you.

You will find the nail caps at your local pet store such as Petsmart. This product is a fake, little nail with soft plastic points, which owners can glue over the cats’ regular nails.  The nails are made of soft material, making it impossible for the cat to harm furniture.

Try it! What do you have to lose?
